My car idles when it's wet outside

(2007 Mercury Montego)
we have put an new oil filter, and oil in, we have put a new senor after cleaning the one that was in there, all these things because my car has been idling when it's damp/wet outside. The first time was when it was really hot outside, my car dies at stop lights and stop signs after idling. it shakes badly. we're really not sure what the problem is because no one has been able to get a code.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? it's worse when it's been really humid and raining for a few days
How long have you had this problem? on and off for a little over a year, more frequently in the last 11 months

Idling is normal but I'm assuming you mean it's running poorly since you say it's shaking. There are many possibilities here and if you don't normally work on cars you will need to bring it in for a diagnosis. Could be a bad coil, injector, low fuel pressure, vacuum leak, etc.
If you don't work on your own car then use this link to find a good shop near you.
